(Virtual) Community Eco-Gardens: Landscaping with Native Plants
(Virtual) Community Eco-Gardens: Landscaping with Native Plants- Join us virtually through Zoom on Monday, April 24 @ 6:30pm CST.
Learn how one residential association transformed their lawn into an unfolding range of stunning multi-seasonally colorful prairie, woodland, and wetland wildflowers, forbs, sedges, grasses and rain gardens. As a recipient of the 2011 Conservation and Native Landscaping Award from the USEPA and the Chicago Wilderness, WTTW Chicago Tonight described this condominium association as "probably the most extensive native gardens of any residential complex in the Chicagoland area." An inspirational program to touch the hearts and minds of those who wish to create native eco-friendly landscapes around their property to enhance biodiversity, aesthetic beauty and environmental health.
Presented by Dennis Swiftdeer Paige, environmental educator, naturalist, habitat restorationist, native landscaping consultant/landscaper, adjunct instructor with the Morton Arboretum and Chicago Botanic Gardens, and was the chief residential native plant landscaper from Schaumburg, IL currently retired in Conifer, CO.
